3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25.4 oz. Bottle. Fresh. Lots of sediment, Brett, in bottom of bottle. Vinous, breadiness scent, Brett underneath, a little weak in strength. Bubbly white head to a ring over a copper high carbonated pour. Light body, crisp, with a fizzy finish - great! Delicate flavor, bright fruit (lemon), vinous, bread, Brett, peppery spices. A little expensive, but I’m going to age a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is nice and slightly hazy orange with nice fluffy and streaming carbonation, nice white head. Aroma has nice notes of dusty cobwebs, lemon, biscuit, bread, some nice lactic, hints of white grape, pear, and peach, touch of earthy and dusty basement notes again. Taste is a nice mix of pear, peach, some white grape, grass, slight spice, touch of bready and yeasty malts, hints of earthy and spicy notes, some lemon and biscuity notes, finishing fairly sweet but some slight funk comes through. Definitely lacking in lactic from the aroma, but really a nicely done brett beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a mostly clear copper color, large initial head quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is lightly barnyard, faint hint of lemon. Flavor is about the same - a light touch of bretty barnyard, a bit of lemon that suggests sourness, but doesn’t quite get there, and an undefined spice note looms in the background. Subtle, bordering on elegant. Wish I had a second bottle to sit down for a decade, this could really evolve into something special. Or not. You just don’t know with brews like this. This was a bit better than my score indicates.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 Bottle. Was pretty excited about this one given the minds behind the brew, maybe I should have bought an extra to save for a later date. Interesting mix, unlike any of the farm house or sour bers I have tried. definitely enjoyable, but different than I was expecting, I guess I should have read the back of the label. Good beer but not sure I will spring $15 for another bottle as I prefer a more sour beer. Thanks to the brewers for putting this one out there.

Bottle pours a hazy golden color with a thin fizzy white head. Scent is fruit, yeast and musty. Taste is pear, herbal, a bit sour and a lot of tart.

Bottle. Clear copper pour with a white head. Lemon zest & fresh bread aroma. Effervescent, dry, and yeasty with some muted peach notes...

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a big short-lived pilowy white head. Aroma was amazing. Sharp, tangy, earthy, spicy, some leathr notes. Excellent sniffer. The flavor fell down a bit though. Some spicy, funky leather notes, but no twang. Pretty mild actually. This one might have done well with some aging.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ SN & @ RR. Fairly clear golden with a white head. Aroma of spicy tart yeast, citrus, honey malt and light alcohol. Flavor is toasty malt, spicy yeast and some fruity esters, very mild alcohol taste. Medium body with active carbonation. This one is ok, not very funky at all but might get funkier with age.

Pours a darker cloudy orange with a few floaties. Aroma is citrus, banana, clove & yeast. Flavor is basically a Belgian pale ale with a slightly sour finish. Some banana, clove and a sour citrus finish. High carbonation. Overall ok. Kind of an almost sour.
More beer please...
